    two words - Texas smiley. I would use it. Someone offered some suggestions before including this guy

    I am also liking these too as they seem to fit more with the current smileys we have.

    So, could this be done? Why or why not?
    And for those who would argue that if there was a Texas smiley, then other states would need smileys too, I submit that there is already a Tennessee smiley :hunter:, an Arizona smiley :tumbleweed:, and a California smiley :banana:

    What reason were you given? I am presuming it is because that one would be used to make fun of charismatics??? The Texas smiley would be used whenever Texasisms were thrown about. And anyone who is on here often knows that many Texan PBers mention Texas often. Sometimes even non-Texas PBers mentions Texas.

    Andrew:

    It wasn't like I placed my suggestion in serious request. Just threw it in a post on a thread. No one declined the suggestion. So there was no rejection of the idea.

    Instead, it just lay there on the floor, its very life slowly ebbing away, until at last it faded into oblivion.

    But it lives again!!!! [​IMG]

    I always thought this was the charismatic smiley :rofl: And for the record, to whom it may concern, I am serious about the Texas smiley!

    Massachusetts smilie - :pilgrim:

    New Jersey smilie - :doh:

    Washington state smilie - :coffee: [Starbucks, get it?]

    I'm not sure what you're trying to tell me, but I'm pretty sure it warrants an [​IMG]

    A word of caution: before using too much more, please read the terms of use on the MillanNet site. The designer there is pretty particular as to how her designs are used, as is her right.

    Objection:

    This :banana: is not Californian, but rather Panamanian (or South American) at best. . .

    A true Californian smiley would surely be a beach-bum/sunglassed/Hollywood-type-representation, wouldn't you think?

    I don't know of one, but here is a .gif that gets the idea across

    :oops: No more Millan Smileys for me, then. Well, at least my [​IMG] isn't from them. You had me worried there for a moment.

    The French smiley is good.

    I've been waiting for my saluting smiley for a long time now. My 2 cents? Resign to your fate as a peasant! No smileys for you!

    Glad you caught that, Wayne. My bad. I guess I'll steer clear of her site and maybe edit a few posts.

    Maybe I'm misunderstanding what is meant by "Direct-link," given that her site generates a link for you when you click on a smiley. Oh well.

    If there were designs you esp. liked, I suppose you could always write to her and ask for clarification or permission to use them here on the PB.
